yashica is back with plans for three new cameras

Unphased by the poor reception for last year’s Y35, Japanese camera brand Yashica is back with plans for three 35mm film cameras – a low-cost MF-1 ’art’ model, a higher-spec 35mm MF-2 compact and a recreation of the classic Yashica-44 TLR (twin lens reflex design).Yashica appears to be following the same Kickstarter route as the much more established Lomography brand, and is perhaps aiming at the same kind of users. It’s clearly chosen a different direction following its first effort.From the images and specs we’ve seen so far, the analog MF-1 looks rather like a disposable camera (although we presume it’s not disposable), even down to the specifications. These include a fixed 1/120 sec shutter speed, a fixed f/11 aperture, a fixed focal length 31mm lens and fixed focus.The MF-2…

capture travel images that captivate

Travel photography is an enormously popular genre among image creators and their audiences alike. Images of far-away places have the potential to capture the imagination, and provide the viewer with a gateway to a world they may not be able to easily explore for themselves. Trips can take extensive planning, requiring a significant investment in time and money, and even today, in the age of budget air travel, being able to truly experience wild environments may not be a reality for many people, while seeing a city through the eyes of the locals is not as easy as it initially seems. For the photographer, travel is a refreshing experience, as the challenges of studying unfamiliar places forces us to adopt new ways of thinking and approach our subject from a…

essential equipment choices

Gear selection is a critical decision G when the photographer will be travelling with limited space and weight allowance, as is so often the case when leaving base for an extended period. When it’s not practical to carry every piece of equipment in our arsenal, we have to intelligently pick items that allow us to cover as many potential shooting opportunities and conditions as possible. While a choice of camera body is relatively uncomplicated – these will likely have been purchased with specific functions and portability demands in mind – lenses and accessories can be harder to narrow down.If you intend to specialise in travel photography, then the camera you buy should reflect the balance of quality and weight that falls within the standard requirements for making images on the…

plan for success

As an extensive photography trip can be a significant financial investment, it’s wise to have a detailed itinerary of your day-to-day travel schedule, as well as an appropriate plan of when and where you intend to make images.One of the biggest issues the travel photographer can expect, though, is an unpredictable change in itinerary. This may have consequences for planned access to electrical power, for charging camera and laptop batteries for example, which may also impact opportunities to back up images and clear memory card space. Preparing for this by packing reserve batteries can help, but it’s also important to remember that restrictions on battery capacity and quantity may be enforced by airport security. A good strategy is to identify outlets for sourcing replacements at the destination, within a wider…

capture city life

Cities are a magnet for travel photographers, due to the high concentration of potential subject matter, and the variety of colour and atmosphere. Urban areas are where people congregate, providing opportunities for street photography in an environment alive with tonal contrasts and engaging architectural forms. However, crafting a successful shot is more challenging than many realise, as the components of engaging compositions can be difficult to identify.The main mistakes that photographers most frequently make when exploring a foreign city stem from a philosophy that a location will generate alluring images solely because it is in another country. It’s important to remember that while a place may be novel for the photographer, this may not be the case for all viewers. A travel shot will likely appeal to someone who has…
